Consider Attending the Swine Waste Management Permit Meeting

The Swine Waste Management General Permit meeting is in a few days. This impacts nearly every hog farm in North Carolina. We encourage you to attend this meeting, even if you don't have a comment. Please consider attending to show support for the interest of our farmers and to stay up to date on current events.

Swine Waste Management Permit Meeting

The current Swine Waste Management General State Permit expires September 30, 2019. A meeting will be held to gain public input on the state’s draft general permit (AWG100000). Feedback obtained during the meeting will help DEQ to prepare a final draft permit that will be published publicly for review early next year.

Those in attendance may make written or oral comments during the meeting. To make a public oral comment to the group at the meeting, you must register as a speaker by 5:30pm. You can also make written comments. Those written comments should provide a reference to the specific section of the permit and focus on the draft permit.
